This ranch style stone lodge has a small number basic rooms at the back of the restaurant (see photo). Room is not sound proof but other guests are considerate. The best thing about the lodge is the dining room with a roaring stone fire place. And the food is great too. There is a guest lounge with a large flat... More

Stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed the very friendly boss and staff and brilliant food and service in the restaurant. Do however have to agree with the other reviewer who mentioned the VERY noisy rooms on the ground floor at the back of the main building. Of course they are the budget standard rooms, but didnt really need to be... More

Great room. Comfortable bed. Heated bathroom floor. Fridge and kettle. Staff very welcoming. Food fantastic high quality. If like us you hire a car go four wheel drive to go up to the slopes. Also take snow chains. The road to mount hutt is an event in itself!

This hotel is a little bit more expensive that others in the area but it is well worth the expense. We liked that it was a 1 km walk to the main part of town so we could enjoy the town without being exposed to the noise from the several bars in town. The view from the hotel is fantastic... More

We stayed in a 3 bedroom villa with two friends. I was expecting something pretty ordinary based on website but was pleasantly surprised when we were personally shown to the rooms. Receptionist was super friendly and helpful. Beds were comfortable and there was no noise from surrounding accommodation. Would definitely stay here if we were in the area again.

We started our South Island tour with 4 nights at Ski Time. Our villa was so well equipped that we were inspired to cook every night (even after skiing all day), which meant we didn't get to try the restaurant (which we will rectify next time!). The villa was wonderfully warm and cosy; the DVD and games library were approved... More

We booked through Expedia and got a really good deal. The room was lovely, clean and warm, with fresh linen and a very comfortable bed, and an ensuite. The entire place was welcoming and we enjoyed a delicious contintental breakfast in the restaurant which was included - the views were amazing. We will definitely stay again 👍

We had a room to the side of the hotel which had lovely views of the mountains. It was a very peaceful location. Methven is quite a small town but is surrounded by beautiful scenery. We stayed for a couple of nights as a stop off and also to go to Mount Sunday (Lord of the Rings fans!), this was... More
